    Attachment of earnings??

    Hi all,

    I would really appreciate some more advice from you lovely helpful lot (i'm hoping flattery will get me some)!!

    As thought, my previous T's have not paid by the date ordered on PO and MC. I sent them a letter outlining outstanding amount less deposit and suggesting they pay £100 pm to clear arrears (some hope)!!

    I now intend to try for an AoE. I know their employers and have found out their new address. As they already have an AoE in place from the local council for council tax will I be able to consolidate or will my best option be to issue a separate AoE??

    Hi
    Who did you use to find their employer, etc

      My Letting Agenets had their employment details and I found their new address purely by chance - it's a small world sometimes!

        Don't be surprised if they tell the court they are hard up and can only afford a minimal amount, such as £5 per week.
        The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.

          You can not tag onto the councils AoE, which is what you seem to be suggesting.

          An AoE will cost you £100 and it is possible to have several running against one employment, but there is a limit (I think it's 3). As Paul_f says, if they already have one AoE going out, that will limit the amount of funds that can be allocated to you as (presumably) the council will have left the Ts with as little as possible to take home.

            I think that if an AoE order is in place and another one gets set up, whatever's being deducted just gets split more ways; ie the council will find they get less money each month if the OP sets one up too.

              Sorry but I must reitterate that she DID provide all documents which were initially requested before both parties signed the lease. This new, rigid requirement for a utility bill only came a day before the agreed move-in date.

              This is not a case of a prospective tenant having no paper trail....

              My partner has recently signed a lease through a well known property agent in London.

              The lease was also signed by the landlord. References from current + previous employer, landlord, etc, and proof of address were requested before signing, and provided.

              Upon signing the lease...

              Firstly, she already provided the previous lease, along with a document from the municipality of Amsterdam stating that she was registered as living there. I paid the bills as we were living together, and she has closed her Dutch bank account (as is required when you are no longer a resident). I'm sure...

              No bank statements with the old address on? These are available freely from your online account, or previous utility bills, council tax bills etc. I find it difficult to accept that they are unable to provide something. I would have concerns if you were my prospective tenant. You need to provide the...

              When you put it like that I'm more inclined to edge towards the S21 route regardless. As much as part of me feels some compassion for the guy and doesn't want to lump more stress on top of someone who appears to be struggling already, as has been said before, none of us are acting as a charity.

              Apologies if something similar has already been covered elsewhere. I did try to search but couldn't find anything that matched my situation particularly closely. A huge thanks in advance to any of you who do take the time to read and advise.

              TLDR version: Police have forced entry into my...

              Thank you.

              My initial contact with the police was just a phone call to the local station. As I almost half expected they wouldn't give up much info, I didn't particularly push back when they said as much and I left it at that. A formal complaint might fill in a few blanks in the story but...

              A back door way into finding out what did happen (or more info than you have now), is to ask for a callback from the local PCSO who covers the beat area where the tenant lives (go online and start a live chat), he or she will know far more about your tenant that a faceless comms operator at HQ or anyone...

              Just because someone knocks on your door, even if it crescendos to them banging loudly on your door, it doesn’t mean you have to answer it or have to go and investigate.

              If the tenant suffers from mental health issues and the police were sent round because someone thought the tenant’s...

              From painful personal experience of this issue... You should formally contact the police, ask them why they broke the door down and ask for compensation. Their lawyer will then write to you with some information which may be useful for you to know (but not giving very much detail). I expect they'll...
